Black Beauty: The New Superfood for Managing Blood Sugar Levels

Black rice, also known as forbidden rice, may help regulate blood sugar levels as suggested by research. Black rice, like other types of rice, is a source of carbohydrates that can be converted to glucose fairly quickly as compared to protein, fat, and fibre and can result in faster conversion of glucose which increases blood glucose levels. Naked carbs in black rice may lead to hyperglycemia and not help with satiety making you feel hungry again soon.

Optimising the Intake of Black Rice for Stable Blood Sugar Levels
• Pair black rice with protein and healthy fats to slow down the digestion process
• Consider cooking black rice with vinegar to reduce its glycemic index
• Monitor your portion sizes to avoid increased blood sugar
• Try using different recipes and flavour combinations to enjoy black rice as part of a balanced and varied diet.

Black rice contains anthocyanins and fibre, that is found to improve insulin sensitivity, ultimately helping regulate blood sugar levels. However, the simple carbohydrates present in black rice are converted into glucose resulting in higher glucose levels. If consumed in moderation, black rice may help to stabilise blood sugar levels.
